How do I add a new contact to our database?

Go to Contacts > Add Company
As you type the company name or employee names, PASKR will suggest possible like entries as you begin to type in order to help you make sure that company is not already in your database.

NOTE: It is very important to make sure there are no duplicate entries of companies or individuals within a company. Duplicates will result in problems related to login and document integrity. So each contact must have their own unique email address and password to access their PASKR site.

PASKR will pull you through a Wizard to help you set up the new company, assign their Trade Type, and add the company employees.
